Early 1960s vintage Dalescraft teak sideboard.
Dalescraft were a small quality maker who were producing in the 1950s and early 1960s . There isn’t much information about them apart from their designer was M.D.Walker , and that they probably closed in the mid to late 1960s .
As with other teak sideboards we’ve had by them its made using a solid teak carcase rather than a veneer . This will have meant it was more expensive when new than pieces by larger makers such as G Plan .
In good vintage condition .
198cms long , 46 deep and 78 high .
By 1968 the only other British maker using solid teak in their furniture A Younger had to change over to using veneers due to costs and to the economic climate in the UK at the time .We guess that Dalescraft probably went out of business around 1965-1968 .
